i say mr. rifkin pointed out that 2020 for the feeder agreement, the contract expense of that, this one would extend only to 2014 because we're trying to maximize our ability to negotiate after the bart board's fare policy increase. and this allows us to negotiate to our own interests for the mta and the city by having this contract only go to 2014? >> well, i think the idea behind going to 2014 was we wanted to wait and see what the bart board fare policy would be. my understanding from bart's staff, conversation, is they are proposing a fare policy that's similar to what or consistent with what's currently there today. so, that was the idea behind having it expire in 2014. >> so, what would happen if we equalized both contracts to 2014 or 2020, what's in our best interest as the mta or the city? >> certainly that's possible to equalize the contracts there. i'm not going to opine on whether -- what's best for the city or not. i think maybe that's a more appropriate question for mr. rifkin on that. but certainly it's useful. >> well, right now doing it to 2014 so we can have b
, mr. rifkin, for the recommendation. and i want to thank the board for this award. i am truly honored and i want to thank mr. harris for the nomination. so, thank you very much. >> thank you. (applause) >> congratulations. and next, moving on to the transit division, we have two teams of employees that we're going to recognize from our maintenance of way section. these are the folks who maintain the entire system aside from the vehicles, everything that the vehicles run and rely on, the buildings, the tracks, all of that. i want to ask mr. haley to come up with mr. young lalague. young is a track maintenance supervisor and terry manages the entire maintenance of way division and is here on behalf of the signal crew. both of these gentlemen have been with the agency for 13 years. and we're really recognizing them for two specific projects, one of which director heinicke is well familiar with, the eureka curve track replacement project which was replacing the track that you heard updates on often at the director's request over the course of the project. very significant in terms of the
. (applause) >> i'd also like to thank the board and mr. rifkin and mr. haley for giving me the opportunity to lead young and also the maintenance crew. again, to reiterate what young said, it's the guys, the boots on the ground that really carry this through, that when everyone else is sleeping, they're the ones out fixing the problems and getting the project done. so, i appreciate all of them, all your crew and all of the signal maintenance crew. >> thank you for outstanding work on these two vital projects. director heinicke. >> sure. i will say a special thank you. this has been as you know, terry and young, it's nice to see you. something of particular interest to me. and i think it would be remiss if i didn't note particular interest to director beach who i suspect is smiling for a brief moment and then will continue yelling at you guys. [laughter] >> so, on that note i will say this is a very tangible and significant thing. the speed and the curve is significant. when you multiply the number of people that go through the curve, by the time lost because of that track wear, you're talk
. colleagues, any questions or further comments? okay. mr. rifkin, thank you. thanks very much. at this time i'd like to open up to public comment if there are any members -- i'm sorry about that. before public comment, mr. rose. legislative analyst report. >> mr. chairman and members of the committee, i would point out on page 5 of our report that the, that the proposed feeder agreement wherein part is paying the sfmta, mr. chairman, that is a totaly voluntary agreement so that bart does not have to enter into the agreement the feeder agreement or where the sfmta is getting a payment. it's totally voluntary. * that is in contrast to the fast pass agreement. on page 7 of our report regarding the -- regarding that feeder agreement as shown in table 1 on page 7 of our report, that without the 5% annual cap on the payment increases, the payments would increase approximately 6 percent annually, and would result in a total of $33.3 million in payments in bart through sfmta. that is an increase of about 1.2 million in payments over the term of the proposed feeder agreement with the 5% cap in place.

that we fully support the comments from mr. rifkin and mr. lee. and i appreciate mr. rose's summarization there. so, we do agree to the amendments that have been proposed. and thank you also for the clarification. the feeder agreement, as it is set up, is not only tied to increases or decreases in inflation, but also rider ship. so, it's not just adjusting by inflation, but also by the number of riders connecting from muni to bart. and then going back to the fast pass agreement, before our time, the fast pass was initially accepted on bart in 1983 to help alleviate capacity problems that sfmta was incurring along the market and mission corridor. so, bart provides a valuable service to the riders of san francisco and to sfmta in providing a direct service along mission and along market bringing passengers from balboa park all the way up to as far as embarcadaro. this is the fast pass was not available to be used on bart. sfmta would no doubt incur additional expenses to carry those riders on their buses. so, we are providing a service. sfmta does set the price of the fast pass. not only th
. is this part of the document that was delivered to us this morning? >> it's included in the letter that mr. rifkin sent you. this is stand alone in a little bit different format. same content. >> can we make one comment? this is the letter itself is nine-pages full of numbers. i think we all can digest things pretty quickly, but it was e-mailed to us this morning. and so for us to honestly have a chance to look at this and digest it and kind of come to a thought process about how we think about these things, i think we need it well in advance of the morning of an 11 o'clock meeting. just a comment to that. it's really unacceptable from our point of view. >> i apologize for that. so, we have two agreements of fast past agreement in which we pay bart for people using the adult fast pass within san francisco. we pay on the per-trip basis. and the feeder agreement, bart pays us based on our provision of services to and from their stations. historically the fast pass agreement has been based on the fixed discount rate off the regular bart ticket. so, for example, the last agreement gave about a

mr. rifkin is right. there is is a lot in the constitution americans believe in today. so, we would continue to do those things. there are also, i should say, some really pernicious provisions that almost no americans believe in today and we ought to get rid of. >> he gentlemen, i wish we had more time. thank you very much. that was illuminating. mtv's new show already reality gold. we go buck wild coming up. plus you have seen her dish out advice to contestants. sharing weight loss secrets with us here. ♪ girl can't help it ♪ can't help it, the girl can't help it ♪ she got a lot what they call the mo ♪ the girl can't help it ♪ >> you are looking for your bed, protein, healthy fat, complex carbs. focus on what you need and he eliminate the rest. >> after dishing out celebrity advice. rachel is with us now to give us easy tips so we can all lose like the biggestlessers. nice to see you, rachel. >> nice to see you alisyn. >> what i love about your book eat to lose, eat to win is that you say that these are easy to follow suggestion lings. you are not counting calories or car
